October 19th, 2015 Matt McCue

Running a small business means that you’re responsible for many different aspects of the company’s maintenance, which can include roles that you’re not specifically trained for, such as IT Security.

While many of the tasks for these roles can be learned through trial-and-error, IT network security is one of the responsibilities that is typically too complicated to learn. Making a mistake during an install or maintenance can cripple your network, which can cause your business to go offline, costing your organization thousands of dollars in lost revenue and additional costs to repair the damage to your IT investment.


The recommended way for small businesses to secure their network is with Managed IT Services, one of the many IT services provided by Tridacom. Our team of IT Consultants and Technicians work around the clock to ensure that the network and infrastructure of our clients remains online and fully operational. We handle all updates, installs, monitoring, and proactively deal with any issues that could cause your network to go down.


With a team of professionals who are experienced in network security working on your business’ infrastructure, your network will continually be updated with the latest software releases, many of which include patches for zero-day vulnerabilities.


A zero-day vulnerability is a flaw in a program or software that a hacker just discovered, and takes advantage of the access before a patch on the day it’s discovered, before an update is installed which blocks access to the newly discovered vulnerability. Code for software and applications are continually investigated for any back-door access, which hackers can use to gain access to your server.


Updating your operating systems as soon as a new version becomes available protects your network, making it more difficult from hackers to gain access to your data and files. While it may be difficult for you to stay on top of all the new updates for the programs and software that run your business, our IT Technicians are alerted of any new versions before they’re released, so that we can install them as soon as they’re available on behalf of our clients.


Our team also analyzes your infrastructure for any possible software conflicts that can cause issues to your uptime, and make sure that the software that you’re running are fully compatible with each other. In the event that your software needs a custom software developed to eliminate a software, our team provides Custom Software Development services to keep your business running at full operational status.
